Great Upgrade to Alp X II
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mountain biker 4 life from Orange County, California on Tuesday, November 29, 2011
As I stated, these replaced by size 11 Alp X IIs after 2 1/2 years of abuse. The are substantially stiffer than the Alp X, but that is to be expected with a carbon sole. The heel cup works great for my narrow heels, while the toe box is good and wide. The only complaint would be the tongue is a bit narrower than the Alp's but it should only be a problem if you have freakishly high arches like mine. I still love the shoes and would buy them again.
- Best Uses: all mountain, Cross country
- Cons: Narrow tongue
- Pros: Excellent heal cup, Very Comfortable, Wide top strap
